Best Christmas film to watch this year? Home Alone: The Horror of course! Check out the trailer...

Home Alone, Horror Film Trailer, Horror Movie, Best Christmas Movies to Watch, Chritsmas Film,
I spotted this little piece of YouTube genius courtesy of the guys over at Unilad. It seems that everyone's favourite Christmas film has undergone a bit of a facelift this year and Kevin McCallister could be facing something a little more sinister that bungling burglars on December 24...

The very best of 'If Carlsberg did deluded commentators they'd be Liverpool fans' YouTube clips

deluded Liverpool fans, liverpool commentator, liverpool commentary,
So at a time when my team Everton seem to be doing their utmost to ruin Christmas for me this year, I can always rely on those boys across the park to cheer me up with their equally appalling performances this season. And what makes their plummet all the better to enjoy is that all of those deluded Liverpool fans from last season have gone a little quiet.

 If you cast your memory back to the 2013/14 season, the media were pretty much slobbering over the prospect of Liverpool winning the league, whilst real football fans couldn't imagine anything worse than having to watch Luis Suarez and co get their hands on the Premier League trophy after having to put up with deluded sentences such as 'It's going to be our year' over and over again.

But of course it wasn't to be, much to our delight and the guys over at YNFA.net who caught the mood of most football fans with their brilliant and hilarious series of 'If Carlsberg did deluded commentators they'd be Liverpool fans' YouTube video clips as we all reveled in the plight of those deluded Kopites.

It all started with Steven Gerrard's now infamous 'We don't let this f***ing slip, we go again!' team talk after the Reds had beaten title rivals Man City 3-2...


But we all know that Stevie G's words came back to haunt him in the game against Chelsea although some Liverpool fans couldn't quite accept it...


Which led to a number of memorable and comical memes doing the rounds on the internet like this one...


But even then Liverpool fans remained deluded, even when Willian's second goal confirmed a 2-0 victory for Chelsea...


So of course it was on to Palace where everything was looking rosy until, well, you know...


You'd think they might have learned their lesson but seems like they're still as deluded as ever if this reaction to Phil Jagielka's late goal in the Merseyside derby this season is anything to go by...


And even the sniff of silverware in the Capital Cup didn't quite go according to plan in the semi-final draw...


So if you are in need of a bit of Christmas cheer over the footy festive season, make sure you check out the YNFA.net YouTube page!

"Step on my damn toes...!" The angriest man on the subway?

Angry subway guy, step on my toes, step on my damn toes, YouTube
For those of us who have to endure public transport on our way to and from work, I think we all know how this man feels. You're squashed into a carriage, wishing you could be anywhere else in the world and to make matters worse you have to deal with some serious rush hour rage from some folk. A bit like this guy! I saw this video on Facebook the other day and just had to share. This guys is just too damn funny, but be warned - if you step on this guys toes then he is going to go medieval on yo ass... Whooooooo!!


PS - Is it me, or is this dude a dead ringer for the dad in Friday?!

The greatest Championship/Football Manager players of all time revealed in the ultimate gamers First XI!

CM, FM, Championship Manager, Football Manager, Best players, Greatest players, First XI, Best XI, Starting XI, Wonderkids,
After 3 months, 137 players, 2,121 votes and several nostalgic visits back to those playground debates about which players would grace your pixelated onscreen tactics board, it is finally time to reveal the 11 players who made the ultimate FM/CM first XI team of all time!

Back on July 17 I wrote a blog post which outlined my ambition to find out who the best players in the history of this great game are to celebrate the fact that I'd been an avid and addicted player myself for over 20 years. The rules were simple - you were voting on players whose in-game ability by far surpassed the reality. The response was incredible and I have to say a huge thank you to the Sports Interactive Forum community for their votes and feedback.

The voting was so tight and competitive that I have made the decision to create the starting 11 plus 9 substitutes made up of players who finished runners-up in the nine different position categories. So without further ado, here is the players who made the final cut...

So there you have it folks! The search for two decades worth of football management simulation superstars has come to an end and as this wonderful game continues to go from strength to strength, stealing more hours from our lives and generally leaving our loved ones wondering what the hell we are doing staying up until 3am in the morning, I for one can't wait to unearth the next wonderkid who will break scoring records on my laptop despite ending up plugging away with a mid-table Conference team in real life.

50 Things that happened in the 90s that will make you feel old! Part 2...

25. It's been nearly a quarter of a century since Nigel Benn fought Chris Eubank...
Just as this generation will look back on the Carl Froch and George Groves fights, we can say we were there when the original British grudge match took place... in 1990!

Boxing, Chris Eubank, Nigel Benn, Super Middleweight, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


24. If Neil and Tony still lived together it wouldn't be funny anymore...
It would just be weird that two 52-year-old men were still roommates. That's right, Men Behaving Badly first hit our screens in 1992.

Men Behaving Badly, Martin Clunes, Neil Morrisey, 90s TV, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


23. Even after 25 years we still love this scene...
Funny how? Like I'm a clown? I amuse you? This menacing scene from Goodfellas still has us lads quoting Joe Pesci's famous line.



22. Fanny packs were cool...
Or so we were led to believe. Even Dwayne Johnson struggles to "Rock" this look! See what I did there? Did you see? Oh shut up, you probably owned a fanny pack!

The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, 90s Fashion, Fanny Pack, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


21. We shaved logos and brands into our hair...
I'm not sure how the craze got started, but it wasn't an uncommon sight in the early 90s to see someone with Nike or Adidas shaved into the back of their hair. Personally I went for WWF, although it was in a barbers so it looked pretty shit and the other kids teased me asking why I had World Wildlife Fund shaved onto my bonce. Sigh.


90s haircuts, 90s fashion, patterns in hair, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,



20. We were there when the East Coast - West Coast beef kicked off...
And it is testament to the music that there are kids born in the 90s who are still listening to 2Pac and Notorious B.I.G. songs today even though they were both murdered over 15 years ago and both cases remain unsolved.



19. Your bedroom probably looked like this...
We were all raving in the 90s. Well, that's when we wasn't at school of course. And just because we couldn't go to all night illegal field raves, it didn't stop us sticking flyers all over our bedrooms walls. Everybody had the Dreamscape: Woodstock 2 flyer on their wall. Everybody.

Flyers, Raves, Flyers on bedroom wall, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


18. And it's likely you owned a Fantazia bomber jacket...
Or something similar. In order to keep in with the cool crowd you convinced your parents that £70 for this item of clothing was essential. Then you'd go home and listen to a pirate radio station like Touchdown FM where they'd play music like...

90s Fasion, Fantazia jacket, raving, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


17. I'm Raving, I'm Raving...
In my bedroom. With my flyers on the wall. And my Fantazia jacket on. Again, I can't stress the importance that you weren't actually at a rave (after all, you were 14), but once that piano rift hit... forget about it!



16. We must just be the only generation to got to drink transparent Coca-Cola...
22 years ago Coca-Cola brought us clear cola when Tab Clear hit our fridges. The fad didn't last long as by 1994 it was no longer being sold, mainly because it tasted pretty rank. But hey, they tried!

Tab Clear, 90s drinks, Coca Cola, clear cola, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


15. They are now remaking shows from our era...
You know you're getting old when this happens. The rich kids of Beverly Hills 90210 first hit our screens in 1990! That means most of the cast are now in their 40s, apart from Luke Perry. He was 40 when they made the show.

90s TV, Beverly Hills 90201, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


14. It doesn't matter how old you are this is still one of the best things ever...
It's Wrestlemania VI. It's Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior. It's 1990 and you're 12-years-old. And now you're 36 and this still gets your excited!



13. Lads mags slowly descended into porn for cowards...
In the 90s our favourite female celebrities started to get their kit off more often to the point where you no longer had to embarassingly hide a copy of a porno mag inside a newspaper, and instead you proudly bought FHM or Loaded because, you know, you liked the articles. Plus that blonde bird from that soap got her baps out.

Lads Mags, Porn for Cowards, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


12. You had a proper computer...
Believe it or not, but that Amiga 500 that you spent countless hours on playing Sensible Soccer or Championship Manager actually stopped being made in 1991, which means it is older than some of the people you work with in your office!

Amiga 500, Computer Games, 90s computer, 90s games, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


11. We will Never Forget...
Well I won't anyway. If there is one thing we knew how to do in the 1990s it was boy bands. Whether it was five bad boys with the power to rock you or everybody in the house of love, the 90s had it's fair share of all male pop groups. But there was only one group that really mattered and 19 years ago we were all drunkenly singing along at the end of the night to this:



10. Gazza cried in 1990...
And 24 years later we're all still crying. Forget 1966, we were too young for that. But this is the World Cup we will tell our kids about - the one where we nearly made it. And then we lost on penalty's to the Germans.

World Cup, Italia 90, Gazza, Paul Gascoigne, Gazza crying, tears, England West Germany, semi final, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


9. Okay, we might talk about this one as well...
Hey, when you think about it, England were pretty good in the 90s! We made it to two semi-finals, the second at Euro 96 when we bought into the fact that Football Was Coming Home. And then we lost on penalty's to the Germans.

Euro 96, England Scotland, Dentist Chair, Paul Gascoigne, Gazza, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


8. Kevin Arnold would be 58-years-old this year...
Was there a better show on TV in the 90s than The Wonder Years? Fred Savage (who happens to be 38 now) played the part of young Kevin, who would now be pushing towards retirement age if the show was still running today.



7. The last time you ate a Marathon was 23 years ago...
It was 1991 when the chocolate bar changed it's name to Snickers and it is 16 years since you had an Opal Fruit (aka Starburst)!

Marathon, Snickers, Opal Fruits, Starburst, 90s sweets, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


6. Alcoholic Lemonade was the best thing since sliced bread...
Especially if you happened to just reach the legal age to drink alcohol and therefore hadn't quite required the taste for beer yet but were still adamant on getting pissed every Friday. Hooch first launched 19 years ago in 1995.

90s drinks, alcoholic lemonade, Hooch, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


5. Geri Halliwell's famous Brit appearance was 17 years ago...
And I'm not talking about the Union Jack dress either! While that might remain the iconic image from the 1997 Brit performance, most lads also got pretty excited when Ginger Spice fell out of her dress.



4. You were massively disappointed with this film...
In 1991 you probably felt the title In Bed With Madonna was really misleading but you didn't really have anyone to complain to without coming across like a pervert.

In Bed With Madonna, Madonna, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


3. The Fun House twins are now 42...
Yep, Melanie and Martina who helped out the mullet-haired Pat Sharpe on the real crazy show where anything goes and you fancied like mad are now in their 40's. Think that's bad, the Alessi Twins from Neighbours are now 48!

Fun House, Twins, Melanie, Martina, Pat Sharpe, The 90s, 1990s, Funny, Pictures than make you feel old,


2. You have been telling people 'You can't handle the truth' for 22 years...
A truly great film can stand the test of times based on how long people quote that particular movie, and since 1992 we have been quoting Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men.

 


1. No one has had a curtains haircut since 1996... 
And looking at this picture, is there any wonder why? What the hell was I thinking?!

Ashley Cole is settling in nicely at new club Roma

Like going to a new school, the first day at your new football club is always a difficult affair. A new language, a new culture and a new way of life. Luckily you'll always have your new teammates to help you settle in and if this picture is anything to go by, Ashley Cole is fitting in nicely with his new colleagues at Roma...
